Holding answer received on 01 March 2018

The Government is introducing a new standard method to assess local housing need, which will provide a transparent and consistent basis for understanding the need for homes in each area. This is not a local housing target and assessing needs is the starting point in the process, not the end. We set out the proposed method in our consultation Planning for the Right Homes in the Right Places, which closed on 9 November 2017. We will consult on a draft revised National Planning Policy Framework before Easter.
